Fettuccine with purple sprouting broccoli

[col type=”three-fourth”]


  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 organic garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 4 anchovy fillets, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp capers, rinsed and chopped
  • 1 tsp rosemary leaves
  • 1 tsp chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 285g/10oz purple sprouting broccoli
  • 450g/1lb fresh fettuccine
  • ½ lemon, juice only
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • parmesan shavings, to serve

Preparation method

  1. To make the hot dressing, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and when hot add the onions, garlic, anchovies, capers, rosemary and parsley. Fry gently until the onions have softened, without colouring them. Keep warm until ready to serve.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the broccoli in plenty of boiling water with a little salt for two minutes, then add the fettuccine and stir and cook for another three minutes. Drain when the pasta is cooked (the broccoli will have broken up slightly).

  3. To serve, place the pasta and broccoli in a bowl and combine with the hot dressing. Add lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with shavings of parmesan.
